Portfolio

Maze Generator

MazeGenerator is a project demonstrating the maze generation algorithm I designed and built using C# ASP.NET Core MVC. The maze generation algorithm is part of a library that the web application uses to produce maze data. The maze data model is packaged up and delivered to the view by a controller which responds to an AJAX request from the index page when it loads, or when a button is clicked.

Emoji Dungeon

Emoji Dungeon is a browser-based video game that builds on my Maze Generator project. It serves to showcase my front-end scripting ability. Using the same maze generation algorithm as MazeGenerator, EmojiDungeon adds an entire interactive layer built using TypeScript. The gameplay code, including a rudimentary AI, is entirely implemented using almost 1,500 lines of TypeScript.
